This restaurant has a varied menu that includes Cajun food. I had the SHRIMP, TASSO AND GRITS and it was divine. The grits were creamy and the shrimp plump and cooked just right. The sauce was wonderful. The lady next to me had the MONTE CRISTO and it looked great. She said it was very good. If you visit, please... More

Have eaten there several times. The food is fresh and wonderful. Owner comes out sometimes to visit guest. Always ask if everything is ok. Seafood salad is amazing. Everything i've tried was great.

My husband and I live in New Iberia, but we were in the Marksville area because we were staying at the Paragon Casino for our anniversary. We looked up local places on Google and discovered this place and thought we would give it a try. Every thing looked awesome. I finally settled on a shrimp po boy sandwich and a... More

Have eaten at BBG several times and have tried almost everything that Chef Trent has created! Hands down most consistently great tasting food in Central Louisiana. I would put Chef Trent up against any chef from New Orleans, Baton Rouge or Lafayette!

We are from New Orleans so we know good food and good service. This is a great restaurant to find in such a small town. I would recommend it to anyone that's not afraid to spend a little money for a high quality meal. Service was just as good if not better than the food.

This is a nice little restaurant not far from the casino. It has a nice variety of options from salads to sandwiches to entrees. Once you enter you order your food at the bar and they give you a letter block to put on the table for your food to be delivered. I got the seafood salad and it had... More
